Re: Downtown Dallas: 2000 Ross Project

How can you build a residential project on a garage while the garage is in use?

The residential portion was never a real thing. You honestly think they're going to start construction once Goldman's moves in? Wrong!

There's a couple of things prohibiting that from happening... You'd have to redevelop some of the current retail and re...
